Gallery packs for schools: South West by South – Gill Russell

Gill Russell’s exhibition South West by South, An t-Eilean Fada, The Long Island: A Poetic Cartography explores the dynamic relationship between the sea and land, and reveals the nautical heritage of the Outer Hebrides.

Gallery packs (available in English or Gaelic) will help Primary school classes to explore An Lanntair’s Visual Arts exhibitions.  They include background to the artist and their work, and questions to start discussion.  The activities will help children to understand the themes in the artwork, and work towards meeting CforE Experiences and Outcomes for the Expressive Arts.
